The Agile Enterprise: Project Roles and Responsibilities in Agile

Jul 23, 2021 9:00 AM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Agile found its way into project delivery with many certifications attempting to define various agile roles, some of them project-related. Although the Manifesto for Agile Software Development is against specialization in an Agile Team, all the traditional roles have become "Agile" by sticking the "Agile" label to the old job title: for example, Agile Project Manager, Agile Tester, Agile Business Analyst, "Agile" Scrum Master and the "Agile" Coach. Most Agile frameworks, like Scrum, Crystal, and XP, were conceived by developers for a small team of software developers, and the Project Manager role is usually omitted. Unlike 'specialized' Agile Project Manager certifications, PMI's Project Management Professional (PMP)® remains the industry benchmark for the Project Manager role, providing an increased focus on Agile and Hybrid practices without compromising the knowledge required to manage projects that can't or won't use Agile practices. This webinar is a comparative analysis of various roles in a project that uses agile practices and how various project roles should change to adapt to a new way of delivering projects.

Six Strategies for Dealing with Difficult Stakeholders

Jul 14, 2021 2:00 PM EDT (UTC-4)
PREMIUM webinar

Have you ever lost sleep because of a difficult stakeholder? Maybe it was a boss, peer, or someone on the other side of the business. Perhaps it was worry about having to deal with them in an upcoming meeting. Or ruminating about how they are an obstacle to progress on a project. So much of our success leading and directing projects and change initiatives comes down to our ability to influence our project stakeholders. Experience teaches us that managing their expectations and building rapport with our key stakeholders can make an enormous difference in our ability to successfully deliver. But the truth is some of our stakeholders are difficult. And though you can unfriend people on social media, you can't unfriend a stakeholder--you have to learn how to deal with them. In this session, Andy Kaufman shares six strategies for dealing with difficult stakeholders. There are no simple answers, but these are strategies that Andy has shared with clients around the world, and you're invited to see which ones you can put into place. After all, you deserve a better night of sleep!
